Is It OK To Stop Muslim Women From Wearing Their Veils? - By ayo.city
Honestly speaking, the question here is more like
"Is France's Veil Ban Protecting or Repressing Muslim Women?"
Under the pretense of protecting security, France has banned muslim women from wearing their veils. Some argue that it is better to be able to see everyone's face in this end days of increased terrorism, others are arguing that this is a complete VIOLATION of a basic human rights.

Where do you stand on this? What's your take?

this is violation of freedom of religion and human right

alabit2003 has a very good point. If Yemen and the rest of the muslim countries can force the practices of Islam, such as veil, no alcohol etc , on everyone in their country, why should the French be disallowed from enforcing their own beliefs?

@lateeph... All those who were involved in the 9/11 were Islam believers but they were the Radicals. They have all be caught and brought before the Courts.

@lateeph... All those who were involved in 911 were Islam believers but there again they were radicals of Islam, and those who Instigated the Bombings have all been brought before the Courts.

Please consider this because you make your judgment.

I was in Yemen with another American lady on a government assignment. This
American lady was forced by the Yemen police to cover her face and make sure
that she pretended she was my wife before she could work in Yemen market. If
the law of Yemen could be applied on another citizen, while should France law
would not be freely exercised in they own country?

I think something gave rise to this decision (terrorism and the likes) which I
suppose the lawmakers there have reviewed all options before the bill is passed
or ban made.
Given this fact, we know what 9/11 caused in the US and the resultant
consequences on travellers and some innocent patriotic citizens.
It is rather unfortunate it bothers on religious beliefs, but I believe whatever
is done is in the best interest of the country.
Yeah some rights may be infringed upon, it always happen when laws are enacted
or policies made. Looking at it from a selfless angle, why would a Man want his
wife's face covered in the first place? As if she is condemned to some bondage,
are there not some other Muslim women (married) roaming the streets with open
faces? Have they been molested or attacked? It is high time we realize that he
who does not change with changing circumstances will soon become a mental 'has
been'.
In my opinion, I think it's a right policy and should be embraced and extended
to some parts of this our own country also.

Cheers,

Chuks.

I totally agree wt u mrkennyng.
For Godsakes, are u going to stop every church from using loud speakers for their night vigils...or tell the oru festival worshippers to change their no woman @night parole in affectg cities...
There is a right to religious beliefs I suppose...a football fanatic that woulgnt miss any game play deserves a watchg of his or her game.
A muslim faithful, to her belief has her own right to indulging principles that make her life tick like a beer drinker every night...
My rationale is probably too simple to the elites on this page, but we must agree that every man has a right to play his own toy whether it be covering faces or getting drunk, as long as no one is harmed in the process.

This is absolute rubbish complete and violation of human right.veil is an integral part of islamic religion, so how could someone just wake up one day and decide to stop what Allah enjoined on muslims? Do they think that seeing the covered face will stop terrorism or they are just tactically, inappropriately and delibrately violating the right of muslim womens?this act has to stop otherwise it might snowball into something much more than they can handle

I want to believe france is doing all she could to protect her citizens. It was analyzed dt d no of ladies dt use burqa are less dn 2000. D description of wot is said to use was clearly stated n it reveals only d face. This is just to be sure of who hids under d burqa.........it is not too much for 2000 women to do in order to guarantee safety of others

I don't understand what France intend to achieve by arresting and prosecuting a woman from practicing her religion.

Honestly speaking this is an open hatred for the islamic world. France will be doing herself more harm than good if the law is not reversed.

Anyway, the case is already in United Nation International Court of Human Right.

So, if such mode of dressing constitutes serious security breach, how should the situation be addressed/resolved?

This is because, it has be adopted to perpetrate evil leading to the destruction of many lives and properties.

Its like the case of banning okada because its now been used for robbery.

Let's review critically.

Every nation has a right to make laws for the good governance of her human,capital and natural resource.If u can't abide by their rules leave the country.What they are preaching is that they don't want fanatics or religion bigotry.

If you live long enough the rest of the World will follow. Its already Illegal to walk in a Bank and Many other Buildings with a Full Face Helmet for the Safety reason as there face is hidden from view. there has been new Technology being introduced called Face Recognition Cameras, these Cameras are being installed thru out City's around the world so the Authority's can detect someone and determine if he or she is wanted for a crime, The Burqa has and can be warn by a Male loaded with an Explosive device and could go undetected and this is why France and many other Country's around the World are contemplating to introduce the same Law. Try walking down a Street in London or Melbourne Australia wearing a Balaclava and see how far you get before you are apprehended by the Police.
